Abstract: By means of questionnaire and interview, the authors investigated the current state of civil aviation physical education in China, mainly, probed into the current state of opening, objectives, contents, playgrounds, fa-cilities and teachers regarding the aviation physical education curriculum in such three aspects as administrators, teachers and aviation students at the aviation physical education department, and put forward the necessity and ur-gency for building a civil aviation physical education system in China. Via their investigation the authors concluded that the aviation physical education theory system in China is not mature yet, still having such problems as not high-lighted key curriculum objectives, shortage of teaching materials, insufficient content volume, inadequate number of teacher teams, and hidden safety dangers in facilities and equipment. Retrospection and countermeasures: in avia-tion physical education, we should focus on the cultivation of aviation-specific physical stamina capacity, highlight its lifetime nature, and combine it with future career; we should strength the development of aviation physical edu-cation content resources, pay attention to the fusion of aviation physical education teaching contents and health education contents, and emphasize the combination of theory and practice; we should perfect the aviation physical education teacher training system, and clear hidden safety dangers in playgrounds and facilities; we should strength scientific researches on aviation physical education, and build a civil aviation physical education curriculum system in China.
